Talk Title: Understanding how features are changing users’ behaviour without AB tests

Talk Abstract: At times, due to product constraints or necessity of features, it just isn’t possible to run split tests but we still need to understand how the products we build change user behaviour. By borrowing techniques from Econometrics, where we’re less able to directly control user experiences, we can find the lift in complex datasets and use this to make informed decisions.

Speaker 2: Rob McInerney – Co-Founder and CEO – Intelligent Layer and IntelligentX Brewing Company

Talk title: Using artificial intelligence to make everyday products better, one beer at a time

Talk Abstract: How can artificial intelligence be used to create a future without advertising and in which everyday products continually adapt? Join IntelligentX co-founder Dr. Rob McInerney as he shares how his company created a self-evolving beer brand that uses AI to optimise beer recipes using customer feedback, which Popular Science voted “the third greatest software innovation of 2016”.

Speaker 3: Rosaria Silipo – Principal Data Scientist at KNIME

Talk title: Hi! My name is Emil and I am a Teacher Bot.

Talk Abstract: I was built to answer your early questions on how to use KNIME. Pardon! I was built to point you to the right training material to help you answer your early questions on how to use KNIME. It was not so hard to build me. After all, you just needed a user interface – possibly web or speech based – for you to ask your question; a text parser for me to understand your question; a brain to find the right training material to answer your question; a user interface to provide the answer back; a nice to have – but not necessary – feedback option, on whether my answer was of any help.

The most complex part was, of course, my brain. Indeed, the definition of the training problem, the creation of a labelled data set, the building of a class ontology were not minor details in the whole project. Let’s just say that my brain works in sub-optimal conditions. While I am eager to learn, the lack of labelled datasets forces me to rely, at least partially, on human teaching via active learning.
